Hi Guys,

Sorry havent been on here for a while, been chokka blokka, moved house and looking after prisoners. Haven't even been on the Scooter for a while bar a quick ride yesterday. Weather is pretty shitty around here. Nearly got blown off yesterday the wind was so bad. But all is well in the Spartacus land. Moved to a lovely quaint English village. Its bloody lovely!

Anyway..

Just wanted to say Merry christmas to you all wherever you are, from the Sparky clan and may you ride safe in 2014 and the rest of 2013.

Love y'all


Sparky

All the best of the season to you and yours!

Edit: On a holiday note, I found the following illustration in this past week's New York TImes Magazine. It points out that there are cultural differences around the world as to what treats people leave for Santa and his helpers:

Just done my bit.

Locally brewed pilsner (actually not very good) and choc raisins, and Mrs Zs famous christmas shortbread.



Of course the kids left reindeer food outside. Oats and glitter.

Thankfully he does not have to eat the same thing the world over then. Would get really boring otherwise.

Trepp - do you leave some falafel?

Considering I live 100 yards from Bethlehem (Xmas ground zero) I probably should!

Merry Christmas Sparky!!
Did you bring the chickens with? Sounds like a nice move.

Is "y'all" local dialect?

Merry Christmas!
This was shared by an aquaintance and I told her I would pass it around as it is something we can carry on with us throughout the New Year.

To all of your and your Family...a "Merry Christmas and a Safe and Properous New Year!"

Merry Christmas to everyone. Sparky you should bring them home once in a while. A few hour around the kids might make the better prisoners. Laughing emoticon I left milk and cookies for Santa and hay for the reindeer. However the first year i did it i snuck out to the barn and brought some hay and put it by the fireplace. Mom wasn't to happy about that one. My dad had my back. He said "next time put it outside because the reindeer don't come into the house because they have to watch the presents". Laughing emoticon

cheers Guys.

No didnt take the chucks, because it was a new build. They do not allow poultry for 3 years. Little buggers.


Christmas morning was superb with the little sparkle dusts. Back at work now though for the Christmas late shift.

boohoo!!

That's weird, but nice to know you can come back to them. Hope they found a good home.

Enjoy your new life there!

I used to work as an RN in a cancer ward in prison. I was always going to prison. Almost everyday sometimes. It is kind of hard to get a smoke brake. You have to go thorugh all those metal detectors. Once an inmate accused me of something i did not do and I almost lost my job. Then it was like babysitting. I think everyone deserves medical care anywhere anytime. Merry x-mas to you as well. Give the scooter a hug sometimes when you are not riding it. It helps with the withdrawal.
